Belonging

By Jeannie Baker

A powerful account of the reclamation of an urban landscape told wordlessly through fascinating, detailed collage artwork.

Observed through the window of a house, a city street gradually becomes a place to call home as the inhabitants begin to rescue their street by planting grass and trees in the empty spaces. Year by year, everything begins to blossom... Told wordlessly and with stunning collage illustrations, Belonging explores the re-greening of the city and the role of community, the empowerment of people and the significance of children, family and neighbourhood in changing the urban environment for the better.

Reviews

'This book is inspirational. There is romance in it, and neighbourliness and family affection. Talking about the pictures with toddlers would stimulate verbal skills and powers of observation, while older children can learn from it about time and nature and society, or make images of the scenes from their own windows. This book is ideal to stimulate art projects, classroom discussions and even neighbourhood initiatives.' The Sunday Times
